Who singer Roger Daltrey to take "Tommy" on the road, will perform at Horseshoe Casino in October


Although The Who never played "Tommy" from beginning to end, Who lead singer Roger Daltrey will when he performs the iconic album along with other Who classics Oct. 7 at The Venue at Horseshoe Casino, 777 Casino Center Drive in Hammond, Ind.

In a press release, Daltrey described the show and visuals as a "show for today's audience from a different perspective."

" 'Tommy,'  an album that tells a story about a 'deaf, dumb, and blind boy' who becomes the leader of a messianic movement, will always be seen as a turning point for the band,” Daltrey said in the release. “Within it, I found the new voice of The Who and the band found its stride in making that music, adjusting it, using all that knowledge that we had from jazz and the blues into making it work in a rock way.”

The show starts at 8 p.m., and tickets range in price from $49.50 to $250, available at www.ticketmaster.com.
